|A story sent by one of our contestants:
Southern Nevada Building Performance Professionals will enter the competition with an Energy Efficient Gingerbread House. The house will have solar panels, insulation, solar window screens, and a blower door, which is a device to check air leakage in a house, among other energy efficient features. Building materials are being kept secret as of this time, but of course are all edible. Southern Nevada Building Performance Professionals (snbpp.org) is a local nonprofit industry organization of home energy auditors and home efficiency retrofitters. SNBPP looks forward to contributing to this event and having a good time in Boulder City on December 7 and 8.
